About Copy Cats
Copy Cats is yet another awesome game from the NetEnt slots factory; it was released in May 2017 to instant success.
And it’s not a slot game for cat lovers only – this is one cute slot game alright, but it successfully doubles as a fun and feature-packed slot game that has an excellent theoretical payout.
The theoretical return to player (RTP) of this 25-payline 3×5 slot is 96.76%, so NetEnt again does not disappoint, and this can be one rewarding game that pays well in the base game already due to Copy Cats feature by which the slot is named.
This online slot will issue wins of an acceptable level – no jackpot or anything similar – and is easy to play, it doesn’t rob you of your money during prolonged gameplay.
Variance is around the low to medium level, which is a bit too low for the CasinoWizard’s more adventurous taste in slots.
Gameplay and Pay Table
The Copy Cats feature is the main thing about this slot game, and will be responsible for all your big wins.
Whenever reel 1 is populated by three identical Cats (Wilds can substitute), all remaining Cats on your reels will transform into the one that’s on reel 1.
This means you can only get a massive win with some luck if you had lots of Cats on your reels when this feature got triggered.
Apart from the three Cats, there are four more Paw symbols, which are the low-paying symbols, and three more medium-paying symbols: Fish, Milk, and Toy Mouse.
Cats, of course, dominate the paytable, but not by much, and there’s no jackpot of any sorts here, just a decent-paying symbol.
Big wins are possible, but they won’t come around too often, and you’ll need luck with the Copy Cats feature to land a big win.
The three cats payout, respectively, 200, 150 and 100 times the bet per line.
Copy Cats is a bonus feature in its own right, but the real one is the free spins game.
Cat Bell is the Scatter that only appears on reels 1, 3 and 5, and you need to land all three to enter the free spins game. You’ll get 10 free spins.
The free spins are just free spins, nothing extra on top, no extra feature.
This means Copy Cats is a slot that actually pays better in the base game, while the free spins game is just a way to get some extra cash, but the base game is king here.
CasinoWizard’s verdict: 2 out of 5 stars
Copy Cat is not the most exciting title in NetEnt’s portfolio.
Thanks to its low variance and high payout ratio, Copy Cats is a great game to play your online casino bonus money through. It’s perhaps also a great game if you’re into cats.
Furthermore, Copy Cats is a title that will appeal to all slot players who prefer to have most of the payout in the base game, as opposed to it being hidden behind free spins or some other bonus feature, and to those players who enjoy base game features that get triggered often.
CasinoWizard is more into high-variance slots with stunning wins. Copy Cats lacks big wins.
The bonus game is kind of similar to the base game, which doesn’t make this slot more engaging.
